  1. SUMMARY OF 1100 PM CDT...0400 UTC...INFORMATION ---------------------------------------------- LOCATION...30.4N 90.7W ABOUT 5 MI...10 KM W OF KILLIAN LOUISIANA ABOUT 30 MI...50 KM ESE OF BATON ROUGE LOUISIANA ABOUT 45 MI...70 KM NW OF NEW ORLEANS LOUISIANA MAXIMUM SUSTAINED WINDS...95 MPH...155 KM/H PRESENT MOVEMENT...NW OR 340 DEGREES AT 9 MPH...15 KM/H MINIMUM CENTRAL PRESSURE...960 MB...28.35 INCHES
  2. This has to be a record for strongest sustained, and gusting winds RECORDED in a hurricane... right?
  3. Roof top rescues are happing in Laplace, not NOLA. Laplace is getting hammered by both surge and rain-induced flash flooding.
  4. Looks like there is some sort of small stream that runs parallel to Donner Dr in NOLA. It looks tiny, so the fact that they're reporting flooding from it is pretty astonishing.
  5. That is likely going to take weeks to fix.
  6. Looks like 1st and 2nd hand reports on twitter indicate the flooding is pretty much as serious as the Jefferson Parish scanner traffic about roof-top rescues would indicate...
  7. This might be a little disruptive to more important things happening... But what a damn child. He begs for help, as if he's in imminent danger... Now he's responding to backlash on twitter for putting himself in a piss poor position? Some emergency, huh?
  8. Rather apparent that catastrophic, potentially deadly flooding is taking place in Laplace.
  9. FWIW, believe the Jock Williams dude (the guy with the stream) is also with him... Esp given Jock's SN location being Larose, LA (same as location indicated in the tweets).
  10. This is that dude who's stream everybody had to, very unfortunately, listen to earlier.
  11. There is multiple strong feeder bands training over the FFE area... and with the system moving *slowly* north, that is not going to be changing anytime soon.
  12. No a levee did not fail... But there is insane rainfall rates across much of the FFE area, with plenty of rain already having fell... In addition Laplace has been getting hammered by surge (see earlier videos posted). Not sure if someone posted it or not, but also saw a video on twitter of flooding in the Lakeview community in NOLA.
  13. ...FLASH FLOOD EMERGENCY FOR SOUTH SHORE AREA OF METRO NEW ORLEANS... ...FLASH FLOOD WARNING REMAINS IN EFFECT UNTIL MIDNIGHT CDT TONIGHT FOR NORTHWESTERN JEFFERSON, SOUTHWESTERN ORLEANS, NORTHWESTERN PLAQUEMINES, WEST CENTRAL ST. BERNARD, NORTHWESTERN ST. CHARLES AND WEST CENTRAL ST. JOHN THE BAPTIST PARISHES... At 808 PM CDT, the public reported flash flooding across the warned area. Between 4 and 7 inches of rain have fallen. Additional rainfall amounts of 3 to 6 inches are possible in the warned area. Flash flooding is already occurring. This is a FLASH FLOOD EMERGENCY for South shore area of metro New Orleans. This is a PARTICULARLY DANGEROUS SITUATION. SEEK HIGHER GROUND NOW! HAZARD...Life threatening flash flooding. Heavy rain producing flash flooding. SOURCE...Public reported. IMPACT...This is a PARTICULARLY DANGEROUS SITUATION. SEEK HIGHER
  14. No doubt that it had the potential but still 150mph felt lofty, at the time IIRC it was still a 105mph storm that had been sputtering most of the day from a wind-standpoint. Great forecast.
  15. Didnt he verbatim say this would be a 150mph ‘cane before landfall? I honestly thought the dude was nuts at the time — in spite of obviously being one of the more veteran/knowledgeable posters on the forum, from my experience.
  16. Well that’s umm… bad with MANY more hours of upstream flow/surge. Does anyone happen to know or have access to data about the levees on each side of the Mississippi? (Eg, how much higher is the levee on the NOLA side vs the eastern side that has been overtopped?)
  17. Honestly I probably should not have tried to even rationalize what he's been saying as you are correct that he almost definitely has not even hit triple digits yet -- as evidenced by that ASOS ob station.
  18. This is where the gate (on Hwy 1) is located for the levee that protects most of the Hwy 1 corridor. Moment of reckoning.
  19. Unsurprisingly, Simon Brewer and Juston Drake are in superb position to get hammered.
  20. Looks like Ida has reemerged into the water via Lake Raccourci.
  21. Before this oil rig news gets too far, we should add that this is only being reported by a small independent source and has not been properly vetted and/or verified yet.
